AMBLER, Pa. — Allergy Technologies, makers of ActiveGuard Mattress Liners, announced Irving, Texas as the location of their third Proactive Prevention Bed Bug Symposium to be held on May 10, 2018. This symposium follows two prior and successful symposia previously held in Florida and California. The events brought together hundreds of hospitality, property management, and pest management professionals to learn from leading experts and renowned industry speakers on the mind shift from reactive to proactive bed bug strategies.

The Symposium’s goal is to increase the awareness, education and cost-effective viability of bed bug preventive programs targeting commercial sales and pest professionals who provide service programs. Ultimately the benefit of prevention is to protect their clients, beds, guests/residents, and reputation from the ever-increasing challenge of bed bugs.

Gail Getty, a Retired Entomologist from the University of California, Berkeley, will speak on the latest bed bug behavior and treatment methods specific to hospitality and high transient accounts; Jeffrey Lipman, Attorney-At-Law, Polk County Magistrate Judge and Class Action Bed Bug Litigator, will share insight into the legal consequences and liabilities surrounding bed bugs in hospitality and other commercial accounts; and, Joseph Latino, President of Allergy Technologies, will offer unique strategies for establishing bed bug prevention and
controlling re-infestation in commercial accounts as well the financial benefits of these proactive approaches.

The Symposium targets those in the pest management industry that offer service programs to commercial accounts such as: hotels/motels, colleges/universities, nursing homes, multioccupant dwellings or any other accounts that involve sleeping areas.
